Emerging Research Speaker Series

To foster community between UCLA faculty and staff, the UCLA Academic Senate, UCLA Staff Assembly and Campus Human Resources will be hosting the 5th annual Emerging Research Speaker Series and reception on May 12, 2014. There will be a special presentation by Dr. Kathlyn (Kara) Cooney, Associate Professor of Egyptian Art and Architecture, whose interest and research involves the reuse of Egyptian coffins during economic crisis.

She produced a comparative archaeology series with her husband, Neil Crawford, entitled “Out of Egypt,” which aired in 2009 on the Discovery Channel and is still airing on Discovery affiliates and streaming on Netflix.
